HINTER DEN BERGEN IST DIE ERDE RUND
Italy / 2002 / 12'
This is a story of past memories in the Upper Tauern mountains and the desire to discover the world behind the mountains and try to go beyond them, at least mentally. There are four themes:
– the young girl: the symbol of the grandmother when she was young and, at the same time, of the poet’s recollections;
– Aurina Valley and the Upper Tauern mountains representing un-changeable nature;
– the "disturbances" and images from "behind the mountains" as "interferences" from the future and the symbol of the desires and dreams of those living in the mountains;
– the musician and poet as people who portray a state of mind strongly present in creative people, who live in a place hemmed in by beautiful mountains that form a barrier that ought to be overcome.
